We know it's been a while since we last dropped a magazine bomb on all of ya, but we're making up for our tardiness with absolute excellence. Issue 31 of Sneaker Freaker took over four months to craft and we reckon it shows! Every form of sneaker appetite should be sated by this one – we conducted a forensic investigation on how Nike's notorious Air Max Plus (The 'TN') became such a beloved delinquent; got the word on Reebok's 25th birthday party plans for the immortal Pump ball boot; and pulled up a pew and listened to an adidas super-fan recount his pilgrimage to Argentina to find some incredible hidden treasure sneaks. We also hunted down exotic animal leather aficionado and in-demand sneaker customiser, JBF, and learned about his design process and how he found himself stitching elephant and cobra skin into Jordans; as well as previewing stacks of new colabs from UNDFTD and ASICS, Ronnie Fieg and adidas, Concepts and New Balance, Patta and Diadora, and more. Every other brand that matters in the sneaker world, from K-Swiss and Etonic to Saucony and Fila have their moment in the spotlight in this issue too – we've really covered it all this time.
Great things take time, and we took ours so we could be truly proud of Issue 31, we hope you love it! Head over to our shop and grab the issue and we'll have it sent to you hot off the press. After that, peep the gallery above for a preview of three of the cover options.
